Two things to get involved with!

Sorry, with which to get involved.

1. A chance to name a celestial object after something Discworldy. http://www.frontierworlds.org/vote Ideally, they want paired names, in case the thing turns out to be two things when the probe gets to it - but most names in the running fall at that hurdle anyway. We could go for (Great) A'Tuin, perhaps, or Ankh and Morpork. Have a look!

2. Your chance to "Wash like a librarian" as the Bangles once sang. I think. Lush are doing a special librarian shaped soap to support oranguntan conservation. See http://metro.co.uk/2017/11/20/lush-is-l ... y-7092869/ for details.
My next project is a book in which I explore the influence of the music of Beyonce on the writings of J R R Tolkien. It's called "It you write it, you have to put a ring in it"

It looks like A'Tuin has been 'retired', so I say go for Ankh and Morpork

Anyone manage to get a soap? I hear they sold out VERY quickly!

I got Paul Kidby and Rob Wilkins to carve their initials into one and put it in the Wincanton Charity Auction - where I'm delighted to say it raised £80!

Sounds like you really cleaned up with that auction lot!
